SSDs are Awesome

  1. 1. Why SSDs are Awesome WordCamp NYC 2009 Barry Abrahamson
  2. 2. Me • Systems Wrangler at Automattic • Sysadmin, systems architect, DBA • Used to live in NYC, now live in Ft. Worth, Texas
  3. 3. WordPress.com • Over 9 million blogs and 11 million users • 50+ million page views/day • 1.2 billion queries/day just for post and comment data • 300+ database servers
  4. 4. Queries per hour
  5. 5. Before • 4 x 15k RPM SAS drives • RAID 0 • RAID Controller with BBWC • $1200
  6. 6. Road to SSDs • January 2008 - Mtron experiment (FAIL) • April 2009 - Intel experiment (SUCCESS) • May 1, 2009 - Production deployment • May 15, 2009 - Critical bug found • May 30, 2009 - Start over w/ prod deploy • July 2, 2009 - Migrations complete!
  7. 7. After • 1 x Intel X25-M SSD 80GB • No RAID controller • $300 http://www.flickr.com/photos/xuoan-dailies/3235208908/
  8. 8. Awesome • 75% cheaper than fast HDDs + RAID controller • 6x real-world performance/capacity improvement • Reliability: 150+ drives in production for 6+ months, only 1 failure.
  9. 9. Less than Awesome • Saves money and your user’s time, but likely not your (sysadmin’s) time • Lots of research, tweaking, benchmarking, hacking necessary to achieve maximum performance • Most software is designed to reduce disk seeks
